Episode 436: Winter Previews #3

This is it folks, the final week of previews. Next week will begin our return to reviews, so come on and catch episode three of the 2014/ 2015 winter previews. But first TC and Red talk news, covering topics like garlic cola, the slow death of Toonami, and burgers that you could feed a family of four with for a night. Then it’s onto this week discussion thread, were they answered the question of what animes you prefer to watch dubbed over subbed. Can you guess what Red’s answer was? And then final, it’s onto previews! TC has checked Isuca off the list, followed a nine year old into Yoru no Yatterman, and questioned the virginity of Junketsu no Maria. Red on the other hand is chalk full of second seasons as he explores Tokyo Ghoul long division A, wants to pet animalgirls in Dog Days”, and is fascinated by Durarara!! x 2. I hope you’re ready, because this show has serious depth.

Podcast Awards 2015 – Nominations Round

Hello everyone, Red here. As you may or may not know the 2015 Podcast Awards are now beginning, and as they always do it starts out with nominations. We were able to make it into the nominations and into the main voting round last year, but we fell short in the final voting round behind The Moth. Personally I think NPR related shows hog way too much of the podcast awards, but as they are a publicly sponsored production I can’t rail on them for being corporate slaves.

So as with last year I would like to take a moment and ask that you guys, our listeners, our fans, our members, our subscribers, everyone, go and fill out the nominations for the Podcast Awards. I’d like to see us shoot for thePeople’s Choice and theCultural/Artscategories, so go ahead and add us in for both of them.

Now you can only vote ONCE, so if you have any other podcasts you’d like to submit for a certain category, take your time and do so. Now if you don’t have any other podcasts or you don’t want to be bothered to do more work then I’m asking you to do, that’s ok, you can just fill out the two categories I’d like Anime Pulseto be entered into and submit that.

Here is the link to click that will take you to the Podcast Awards website:

http://podcastawards.com

Assuming we make it past nominations, then I’ll make another post to remind everyone to vote.

I’ll also mention this on our next show this coming sunday, just in case you don’t visit the front page as often as I do.

Thank you for your time, and wish us good luck!

Episode 434: Winter Previews #1

Do you feel that? A winter chill has brought us a brand new season of anime, and thanks to Jack Frost all three of the musketeers are here to bring you the sneak peeks into what this season has to offer. But first it’s news, as TC talks about Toonami, Red cooks up some Ice Cream Curry, and Ichigo morns the loss of the opera singer behind Ghost in the Shell’s soundtrack. Then the trio swings into a new Discussion Thread, where the question this week asked you what you wouldchange in one of your favorite animes. Finally Ichigo, TC, and Red delve into previews. Ichigo brings to the tableShinmai Maou no Testament andAnsatsu Kyoushitsu, Red hasAbsolute Duo andSeiken Tsukai no World Break, and TC introducesKantai Collection: KanColle andKoufuku Graffiti. Sorry about TCs audio quality, without the waifu around he’s just a huge mess and plum forgot to check his wavelengths as we got started. I promise if you put up with it this time, I’ll be sure to remind him to step out of thetardis before recording next week.

Episode 433: The Daily Lives of a Manga Shop's Employees

What a show, what a SHOW! I tell ya folks, if you’ve ever wanted to hear an angry Red then prepare yourselves because you’re about to. TC and Red jump right into news from the past week, talking about the successful Clannad Kickstarter, million dollar mechs you can ride around in, and then Red spikes his audio as he pummels BBC Radio for their ridiculous special on Japan’s manga and anime culture. Be warned, Red yells and swears like you’ve never heard before, so hide all the children and cover your ears; it’s a doozy… Poor Red. Then to chill down, TC invites Red back with the Discussion Thread that was promised the week before: What are 3 of your top favorite anime EDs? And finally, TC and Red do a joint review on the slice-of-life comedyDenki-gai no Honya-san. If you happen to see a tall, devilishly handsome, and angry drunk stumbling about, please send him home, that’s probably Red. Next week starts previews, so look forward to that!

Episode 429: Magic Robo no Yona

That’s right, we’re back! After sleeping off the Thanksgiving dinner we have returned to bring you the latest in news and reviews, or at least the latest news right behind Japan. Damn time zones. We talk about deaths in the anime industry, a cafe with less then subtle perverse dishes, and the exclusive Japanese Godzilla video game will be making it’s way to the states. Then it’s onto a Discussion Thread that is little more then left overs now, because it’s all about Thanksgiving! What anime characters would you bring to a Thanksgiving dinner? And finally, we warp the show up with reviews. Ichigo is first up to bat with a review of Akatsuki no Yona, then TC reviews the thieving Magic Kaito 1412, and Red reviews the sexually charged Kenzen Robo Daimidaler. Now hang on, because Red is bringing back the segment sound effects! That’s right, he’s actually doing something more then drinking and wishing a yandere would stab him with love. Be sure to let us know what you think of them, and any suggestions or comments on future show sound effects.

Episode 428: Dragons and Tits

Oh, hello there, welcome to another episode of Anime Pulse. I’m your handsome and charming host RedUnit10, and this week I am joined bythe adorable and kawaii-waifu to TimeChaser; Raina. We start into news, talking about energy drinks full of seahorses and politicians who support anime. Then it’s onto the discussion thread, where everyone was disagreeing with everyone else! What is your unpopular anime opinion? Then, sadly, Raina encounters a wild laptop. It uses Overheat, and is super effective. Leaving just poor little Red, all on his lonesome. Luckily he has plenty of boobies to keep himcompany, as he reviewsSeikoku no Dragonar. For everyone who wants a cute female host, listen from the start. For everyone who wants a crazy male host, stick around till the very end. In either case, come along, and let’s get this partystarted!
